Maha Shiv Raatri is a celebration of Lord Shiva and Devi Parvati’s wedding. Devi Parvati performed intense tapasya for a long period of time in order to attain Lord Shiva in marriage. Though many attempted to discourage her from her path of devotion onto him, her divine Love remained unshakable. She was fully surrendered to him in mind, soul, and heart; and this is what pleased the perfect Lord Shiva.
